Here is a plot of the DK and SD1283 temps for 2x00k builds:

There are 6 2500k and 1 2600k datapoints (the 2600k is just above the line at 73C). So, it's working well, especially for the price.

Wow, very very nice! But what speeds are the clocked at? I just want to get a sense of an idea how far the 2500k or 2600k can be overclocked.

Thanks and rep+

Thanks, glad it helps. Below is the raw data for the Xigmateks. I guess the target depends on what V and T one is comfy with. I'm planning a similar build and am thinking of 1.35V.

Thanks for that, Intel states that the max should be 70-72c if I am not mistaken. (According to its official website). As for voltage, I've been reading a lot of boards saying that 1.45v should be the max for air cooling (or depending how good your cooler is). But the chart here you showed all seems to be well within its range limit. I am deeply surprised on how well this DK can hold its own. Very impressive!

*i.e. I am a bit concern for brian19876, whose running at 4814Mhz with the max temp of 82c?! Kinda scary right there.

Rep+ for the help!

Glad to help. Oh, the 72C is actually the max for Tcase (the IHS), as opposed to T-Junction (core temp).

It's a common confusion, since AFAIK, Intel doesn't specify a recommended TJ-max for SB, other than the throttle that kicks in at 95C, and the 98C shutdown.

I also found this rather odd post from someone who apparently works at Intel--I suppose this is the official line, since that is from the spec sheet, but I would think the Tcores are also important:
http://communities.intel.com/message/138877#138877

For a safe V max, once again Intel didn't spec anything for SB (the commonly quoted 1.52 is VID, not VCC), but there is this poll and interesting discussion (a few posts say there is a 1.4V spec for SB-E):

So I can assume saying that 80c would be the max safe limit temp? If I remember the IHS is different than the core temp correct? Damn, I forgot what the IHS stand for again? redface.gif

IHS is the Integrated Heat Spreader, i.e. the metal plate on top of the CPU. Yes, its temp is lower than the core temps. The max safe core temp is not really known objectively, and opinions vary -- this first post has a summary:
http://www.overclock.net/t/968053/official-the-sandy-stable-club-guides-voltages-temps-bios-templates-inc-spreadsheet/0_20
Personally, I'd agree 80C is a reasonable max, based on what others have done.

Cool..look forward to getting either this or the Xigmatek Balder to replace the stock cooler. Using a Phenom II x4 925 @ 2.81GHz at the moment.
